ZendikariWol I'm not sure you're reading all of the text involved in Fragile. Mox Iridium also triggers when targeted by creatures, planeswalkers, etc. Not just spells. i.e., you want to trigger it by making something more useful out of it--playing Animating Faerie, Tezzeret, Agent of Bolas, or Skilled Animator, or something cheaper so that you break even or actually gain mana out of the transaction. Use an Icy Manipulator or Unbender Tine to give yourself free mana, once per round (because if you do it more than once, you break it), on your opponents' turns or on your own turn.
Fragile also triggers this way. An opponent can kill it even without something that specifically targets artifacts--you're looking too specifically at cards that target only artifacts. A Brazen Borrower can kill it if it's played in response to you targeting it with a spell or creature. Or for that matter, a Pestermite can tap it, in response to its owner targeting it to try to get its use out of it, and before even that tapping resolves, it dies. Really, anything can kill it--even an opponent's Icy Manipulator, in response to whatever the first spell/ability that targeted it was. Your opponent doesn't need to cast two spells to kill it. They only need to target it with anything in response to you targeting it. BUT you want to target it in order to make use of its ability. Therein lies the risk/reward. Flickering it, as you pointed out, might be the best way to go infinite with it; you spend two mana, flicker it, generate two mana, and when it re-enters the battlefield, it forgets that it had been targeted before. You can use Venser, the Sojourner, Aminatou, the Fateshifter, Skybind, and Brago, King Eternal to cheat mana out of it this way, perhaps more cards than just that. Like I said, I'm sure one can find a way to go infinite off of it, which is why it's important that it's fragile.
Although, like I said, since it's a zero-mana artifact, it probably won't be used for what it's designed for--it'll probably just be one of the 99 in a storm deck or a cheerios deck, simply by virtue of being a zero-mana artifact spell.

Shielded by Faith makes infinite tokens when your general is out! You might like these too: Starfield of Nyx, Sun Titan, Crystal Chimes, Flickerform (super fun with dudes like Heliod's Pilgrim), Skybind, Sram, Senior Edificer, Kor Spiritdancer, Eidolon of Blossoms, Ajani's Chosen, Archon of Sun's Grace, Sigil of the Empty Throne, Bramble Elemental, Flickering Ward, Broken Fall, Molting Skin

Very surprising that Heliod, God of the Sun isnt in here. He's an awesome mana sync and makes cards that you have like Ethereal Armor and Sphere of Safety soooooo much better. Additionally, All That Glitters and Skybind are pretty good; if you do put in Serra's Sanctum and Heliod, God of the Sun you can make an overwhelming amount of clerics by blinking Serra's Sanctum with the trigger from Skybind and dumping the mana into heliod.

I have a Daxos deck, and I do think that it works better as a group slug archtype.
I would recommend cards like Rule of Law to slow down your opponents. Or some discard packages like Oppression , Necrogen Mists . Depending of your build I would recommend Call to the Grave since Daxos is a zombie itself.
If you dont want to change your archtype, I would recommend using Divine Visitation as a "second copy" of Anointed Procession . I would use Etchings of the Chosen as anthem and Daxos protector. Other option to protect your table is Cloudstone Curio , it sometimes works as a second copy of Skybind and in other moments it protects your enchantments from removal.
Another way of increasing your experience counters and triggers, is to use Auratog , or others enchantment sacrificers together with graveyard returning enchantments such as Brilliant Halo . This is reinforced by the new Starfield Mystic .
I would recommend using mana rocks such as Gilded Lotus for an option in blinking it with Skybind and generating extra tokens every turn. A card that seems bad, but really compliment this strategy is Victory Chimes .
If you want to check my deck out, go here Daxos, Police of Fun

I'm not really sold on the cycling stuff though. if you have a blink engine on board ( Skybind would go well with the enchantress stuff), there are a lot of creatures that will just put cards into your hand instead of filtering them.

Hey all, thanks for the comments.
Flooremoji, I'm not sure if Sundial of the Infinite works with this hypothetical sliver, but I don't see why it wouldn't. When activated, Sundial does have you bypass the end step. I designed this sliver to essentially reach out beyond the typical design space for slivers towards a Derevi Creature toolkit Archetype.
Ugin420, i'm considering this sliver for all formats. IF this were to get printed, then it wouldn't be by itself -that's for sure. Quick Sliver could come right alongside it. Question for you - what hypothetical ETB slivers should be printed to help this hypothetical Sliver?
dbpunk, In my opinion Skybind is just a bad card, and I wouldn't want to water down this hypothetical sliver's design. It's meant to lend itself to more than just slivers. The Harmonic Sliver ability has it's own draw backs anyway - as it doesn't have a "may" clause and could destroy it's controller's enchantments and artifacts.

Honestly this seems like a really interesting sliver idea. Although there aren't many slivers that have etbs, I could see this being in edh decks mostly. Maybe format it like Skybind so that you can avoid the Harmonic Sliver ability though, for balancing reasons.
